Jessie Grinnan, a stay-at-home mom from Palm Beach County, Fla., pays $13 a gallon for milkand she couldnt be happier about it.
Grinnan drinks raw, unpasteurized cow's milk that she buys at a local farm. Its a full milk, she says, so its not watery and its not bland. Its delicious, actually, and Im not a huge milk drinker.
Grinnan believes raw milk has health benefits. She says her husband couldnt tolerate pasteurized milk and has found relief from his allergies since they switched to raw milk. She says she also doesnt want her 23-month-old son drinking anything whose origins she cant identify.

Big milk fan here.
I don’t care if my milk is pasturized but, I don’t care for homogonized milk.
Non-Homogonized milk tastes better, however, it’s damned difficult to come by.
I wouldn’t care if it wasn’t pastuerized as well.
I drank fresh goat and at times, cow milk.
Didn’t kill me. didn’t have crappola added to the process and with 5 siblings we never had enough. Specially with 4 growing teen boys.
These days, I never finish the milk before it turns and yes, it’s more expensive than pasturized/homogonized milk but, I’m fine with it.
I don’t think commercial milk is good for your liver and pancreas.
I should be allowed the choice to purchase what I think is best for me.
Same with chicken. Kant stand chicken that comes with 15% brine.
I know how much salt I want to use on my food, which is next to none.
I also prefer control over how it’s seasoned.
I’m even okay with fresh chicken eggs. Grew up on them too and I don’t need em to last 60 days.
No Modified Food!!!
An older blonde woman heard through a friend that taking a milk bath is good for the skin, will cure stretch marks and make her beautiful again. So she left a note for her milkman to leave 15 gallons of milk instead of the usuathe milkman arrived, and read the note, he felt there must be a mistake.
When he thought she probably meant 1.5 gallons so he knocked on her door to clarify the point.
The woman came to the door, and the milkman said, Yes maam, I found your note to leave 15 gallons of milk. Did you mean 1.5 gallons?
The blonde said, I want 15 gallons. Im going to fill my bathtub up with milk and take a milk bath.
The milkman asked, Do you want it Pasteurized?
The blonde replied, Nope, just up to my boobs, I can splash it in my eyes.
“Kant stand chicken that comes with 15% brine.”
I “kant” either. I notice that the chicken that has brine is usually on sale, and the breasts are very large! 8^) I have a feeling that they’re the old egg layers that have passed their prime. I get my chicken at the Asian market. They buy from the local Amish. Good stuff! Smaller, but very tender. Free range, and not loaded with antibiotics.
I can’t shop in Asian stores, as the stench is just awful.
Plus, it’s important to know the birdy was raised in Murica and murdered here.
Less bird and a tad more spensive but, I understand the tradeoff.
I don’t even like Hot Dead Chicken from Costco.
Still luv Xtra Crispy and original from KFC though...
One wonders if heat doesn’t cause some protein in milk to partially unfold revealing intensely allergenic areas.
I grew up on raw milk. I love it! Hadn’t had any since the 70’s until a lady gave me a quart last year. It was just as delicious as I remembered. Homemade butter is so much better made from raw milk.
We milked a cow, strained it, and drank it. Never tasted raw to me.
My son is lactose intolerant I keep telling him to try raw milk, heard that it doesn’t bother you like P&H milk.
I have been raising my own chickens for eggs and growing my own garden for years. Can’t believe how crappy store bought veggies and eggs taste. When I can I buy raw milk from my local dairy, so much better.
We buy Homestead Creamery from VA. Where I live in NC we get it at Kroger and Earthfare. It is available at Wholefoods in some places.
It’s pasteurized, but not homogenized and comes in glass bottles. My adult children who live in northern VA get it home delivered.
I would prefer raw milk but it’s illegal in NC. This is as close as I can come and it is world’s better than the watery stuff in the plastic jugs.
PS. We drank raw milk for years in OH, WV, and GA. Whenever I can that’s what I buy.
We would put the milk into gal. jars in the fridge and I certainly can relate to the saying ‘The cream rises to the top.’ In the summer, all week we would scoop the cream off the top, save it, and make ice cream on Sat. Nothing better!
Ever drank milk from a cow that has grazed in wild onions? Nasty stuff! Same for the meat!
The only way to use drink it is to take a bite of raw onion before you drink the milk or eat the meat.
Back in the 1970s I worked second shift so I was headed to work at milking time.
Stopped at a dairy farm with my own 1 gal. bottle and filled it with still warm from the teat cow’s milk. They had a sign up in the milk room that said “Not For Human Consumption” but the farmers and all the people buying knew the score.
Day-yum, that stuff was good.
LOL! Yes, wild onion ruins it for sure. NASTY!
They can taint a whole truckload of milk.
One of the few times I have seen DH run — our cows got out into a field that had wild onions in the fence row. He was really moving to get them out of there!
